Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
"On Tuesday, video of an unidentified black man in St. Paul, Minn., being questioned by police officers hit the Web. What isn’t seen but is heard clearly is the Taser being charged and then shot as the man is reportedly arrested for what appears to amount to sitting in a public space waiting for his kids to be let out from school and then refusing to give his name because, according to him, he “hadn’t done anything wrong.” According to the cellphone video footage posted to Twin Cities Daily Planet, the man, who is filming the incident, tells a female officer, “Why do I have to let you know who I am? I don’t have to let you know who I am if I haven’t broken any laws.”"
